Did you know?
The Guy S. Potts Building at 701 E. Main St., which houses several district offices, was built in 1928 as Henry Clay High School. This facility was the largest city high school in Lexington at the time. In 1970, Henry Clay moved to Fontaine Road, and the Main Street facility was renovated for district offices and renamed for Potts, who served as superintendent from 1961 to 1984.
